symantec endpoint protection 14

  • June 16, 2017
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
generic exploit mitigation, download insight, advanced machine learning features.You can enable Semantic Endpoint Protection to send information about detected threats and your network configuration to Antecedent. Semantic uses this information for additional analysis and to improve the security features in the product.
What do you dislike?
there is no feature to block social media attacks. no doubt very awesome and easy to use.These scans let you select specific folders to be scanned rather than scanning all the files on the Windows client computer. The %systemdrive% variable indicates the location where the Windows operating system is installed. The %userprofile% variable corresponds to the user profile folders for the users who are logged on. You can also exclude these folders from being scanned by using an Exceptions policy.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
SEP provided secured environment, prevents from ransomware attacks.its protect our client from ransomware attack. so i like it very much. and in This new endpoint-based machine learning engine can detect malware based on static attributes. This technology enables Symantec Endpoint Protection to detect malware in the pre-execution phase, thereby stopping large classes of malware, both known and unknown. The AML engine works with the Symantec real-time cloud-based threat intelligence to provide best-in-class protection with low false positives.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
SEP works beyond antivirus product .You can enable Symantec Endpoint Protection to send information about detected threats and your network configuration to Symantec. Symantec uses this information for additional analysis and to improve the security features in the product.Symantec Endpoint Protection defends businesses from both malware and targeted attacks—protecting against new and unknown threats.

Symantec Endpoint Protection uses Symantec’s Insight platform to collect and collate data from over 200 million systems in 200-plus countries. It uses this data to identify and create a security rating for every file accessed through the Internet. As a result, it stops targeted attacks and advanced, persistent threats with a degree of protection that far exceeds the capacities of traditional anti-virus.
Deployed as an on-premise solution, Symantec Endpoint Protection offers unified management across physical and virtual platforms, with granular policy control for enhanced flexibility and scalability.

The support team is extremely helpful in case of any issues.

It doesnt have Web Filter option. Reporting should be more accurate. Renewal is expensive.

I guess everyone need to use this as its one of the leading End point in the industry and it has the rapport of maintaining its credibility in virus definitions.
